Test usually take half a day.. tried not to puke out the orange glucose water that U drink otherwise will have to reschedule the appt... on that day itself bb will be super active

Usually half a day.

Fast from midnight, only allow to drink sips of water. Take 1st blood test, drink glucose drink (it’s like very sweet F&N orange for me), 1 hr later take blood test again, and another one 1 hr later. In between I’m allowed to drink sips of water. If any of the 3 test failed, Gynae will advise on diet n exercise regime.

I just did my test and threw up 30 mins after drinking the glucose drink 😅 It can make some mummies feel nauseated so please drink slowly (I was given 10 mins to finish the bottle). If your gynae allows you to take some sips of water or go for walks in between while waiting for your blood to be drawn, please do! I started breaking out in cold sweat and eventually vomited everything. Good luck with yours!

Mine told me that I didn’t have to retake the test too! Because he thinks I’m gonna vomit again anyway :P But I’ve got to do a randomised blood test to test for GD. I rather have my blood drawn than drink that glucose drink again!
